For an example, if we wanted to know how many web-servers were running over time, we might use (very sloppily):
webservers PS count httpd
[You probably want a better regular expression.]
varname FILEAGE /path/to/file
This will produce a timestamp for the last-modification time of
PROCNAME examines /proc (only under linux) and produces counts of specified named processes
PROCDISKIO examines /proc/stat (only under linux) and returns disk I/O operation and bytes counts.
PROCMEMINFO examines /proc/meminfo (only under linux) and returns returns the memory stats. Some-one please tell me firstname.lastname@example.org if you can interpret these to tell when a host is really running out of memory.
PROCNETDEV examines /proc/net/dev (only under linux) and returns usefull network counters
